If there is one actor in Hollywood that has had a ton of jobs… it’s Tom Cruise, hell it is one of the defining character traits of his early career. ‘Ah, this is the one where Tom Cruise is a patent lawyer’ ‘Ohh, the one where Tom Cruise is the air conditioner repairman?’ ‘I never saw the one where Tom Cruise was a circus clown for the mob.’
So, the Somethings have taken it upon themselves to look at Mr. Cruise’s resume and list off some of their favorite jobs that he has had.
Set your E-Meter to Clear, we’re on Cruise Control…
Sometimes, the Somethings need a little cultural – and given that normally they are as cultured as a strep throat test, they need to bring in the big guns.
Joining the boys this week is the long-time friend of the show, Meredith Placko – host, geek of all colors, and one half of the model paint powerhouse TurboDork. One of her nerddom dujours is historical fashion – so it felt like she was the prime candidate as we get down and discuss Period Films.
So get yourself some absinthe, a powdered wig, a ten pound bag of boning, and get ready to talk about the past!
It is a new year – and what does that mean? Tons and tons of websites with lists about what the best of 2019 was… well we’re not doing it. We’re going to start the new decade looking forward at the movies that are to come.
From the obvious to the surreal, join PCR and Hatton as they talk about some of the movies and trends that they are expecting to look forward to, or are at least hoping to not hate.
Let’s get this decade underway with the first time I get to say
For the first time ever, this episode was recorded LIVE on Twitch – and you can be here for next great live adventure November 5th@ 9pm – simply go to twitch.tv/somethingsomethingcast and make sure to follow us so you don’t miss out.
There are some great stories out there connected to movies… from ghosts on the set to mishaps to unintentional Easter Eggs – when the final product comes out, we get to see 2 hours of edited and poured over movies… but what goes into them is months of work… some craziness is bound to occur.
Rob and Hatton sat down and talked about some of their favorite unintentional movie mysteries so big that they became urban legends.
To start us off on our month of haunting spectaculars is heading back to the well of horror. We’ve talked franchises, we’ve talked villains, we’ve talked horror battle royale – but we’ve never out and out just talked about our favorite horror movies.
So this week, Podcast Rob and Hatton are grabbing their masks, their machetes, their chainsaws, and their sexy sexy costumes and getting ready to spend an hour jawing about their favorite scary flicks.
The Summer has come to an end, sadly. With that goes the big summer popcorn slinging monster cost movies that seem to bring in not just the bacon, but the whole damn pig farm.
Rob & Hatton have talked at ends about some of their favorite movies, of which quite a few were blockbusters of the Summer, but they have never settled in and simply talked about Summer Blockbusters as a concept.
So without further blather, please – get your sunscreen on, a giant tub of popcorn, the bag of sour patch kids you heisted in your back pocket, your wheelbarrow full of soda, and lets get to talking about some of the biggest movies money can buy.
There is an infamous place in New Jersey, home of the Somethings, that had the nickname of Traction Park.
This amusement park was known for its bad management and injury prone nature.. and yet we all went as a right of passage.
Take that information and welcome to Action Point, a movie inspired by the world of Action Park and taken and pushed through a Jackass fueled blender.
What did the Somethings thing? Did they walk away with busted up ribs from laughter or chip a tooth from grinding their teeth in anger…. only one way to find out – check out #10 of Something In Review – ACTION POINT!
A group of people who have seemingly never met all gather together, invited by the mysterious Mr. Boddy.
What we find out from there is how much they do know about each other and what they hold over each other’s heads….
Unendingly quotable and beloved by everyone with good taste, this movie made form a boardgame should not have ever been as good as it ended up… but here we are.
So count your bullets (1+1+2+1…) and douse the flames on the side of your head, we’re giving you Something In Review #9: Clue.
Podcast Rob and Hatton love a bad movie.. maybe Hatton a little more than PCR. Specifically, the kinds of movies where there is so much fun being had by the people that made it or the premise is so knowingly dumb that it is hard to not enjoy yourself.
These are not those movies.
You see, we have talked about bad movies before, but not bad movies before… you follow? The sort of movies that you get up and almost leave the theater and ask for your money back bad. The type of movie you stop in the middle to go get yourself some Tums bad. Movies that derail careers.
These flicks aren’t the sorts of things that came out of the other side of bad and found love… they just got lost in bad and haven’t thought to ask for directions.
